Hands #155-160: Calvo Hits Trips

Jan_Kores

Hand #155: James Calvo limped and Gaurav Raina checked to see the flop {7-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{J-Spades}. Raina checked to Calvo who scooped the pot with a 275,000 bet.

Hand #156: Raina raised to 240,000 and Calvo defended his big blind. Both players checked the flop {A-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts} but Raina led out 350,000 on the {Q-Clubs} turn. Raina called.

The river was the {6-Clubs} and neither of the players liked the fourth club on the felt, so the action went check-check. Calvo turned over {8-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for rivered trips and Raina mucked, saying to his rail something about being beaten because of the river.

Hand #157: Calvo opened to 460,000 and that was too much for Raina as he laid down his hand.

Hand #158: Calvo received a walk.

Hand #159: Raina received a walk.

Hand #160: Raina min-raised from the button. Calvo double-checked his cards but then decided they were not worth defending.

Hand #146: It started with a limp and check, but the action heated up on the flop {K-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Hearts}. Calvo led out 275,000 for a pot-sized bet and Raina responded with a raise to 800,000. Calvo announced he was all in and Raina snap-called for his 3,495,000.

James Calvo: {9-Spades}{4-Spades}
